Orson Scott Card has a newish book: Lost and Found, and I’ve been missing the Pathfinder series, so this was a happy. Then partway into it, I was having such a good time, I decided to put it off and finally start the Mither Mages series …I’m enjoying The Lost Gate AND and! it plays in Washington DC in familiar towns and streets AND and! it goes on to play in Yellow Springs, Ohio ! Xenia! of all places! Is it going to Kyoto next? I’m a happy.

‘This may complicate matters for me,’ said Daneel thoughtfully.
‘It is in a good cause,’ said Giskard.
Asimov is hilarious and a complete romantic (on multiple levels). And Daneel and Giskard are the cutest best friends ever. —Even more than Daneel+Lije Baley. And even a smidgen ahead of the super cute Aziraphale+Crowley.
SO MANY ALL the things. Podcasts, library books, books on my shelves, streaming audio, friends’ content, news programs, stories, educational programs, ETC.
Too many all the things. I cannot all the things.
Snow Crash ended abruptly, but the ending was not really worse than the rest of it had promised. Tons of excess verbage from cover to cover. But I liked the premises, settings, and characters… Aside from the much excess of it (not so many words necessary to tell the story), I liked it. I’d really like it as a a well-done (multipart?) movie.
I have been lent The Power of NOW, by Eckhart Tolle.
I believe this book has passed my path before, but.. well, I have it now and I’m looking forward to reading it.
